UIS Cave and Karst Data Fields - Draft
This version generated on 7-Nov-2000
Caution: The material below is under preparation and has not yet been released for discussion. Its details are being changed.
This is the current full list of the draft cave and karst data fields under discussion as referred to in the Cave Data Exchange Proposal of the Informatics Commission (UISIC) of the International Union of Speleology. It is part of UISIC's project to facilitate data exchange between different cave/karst databases. When the definitions have been finalised in English, they will be translated to other languages. The list will be updated as discussion proceeds. Further fields will be added whenever necessary. The fields and their definitions and coded values will be discussed, one group at a time, via the CaveData mailing list prior to circulation to UISIC delegates for voting. The first group for discusion will be "basic" fields used by most databases. In this initial full list, the fields have been grouped firstly according to the entity they belong to (such as caves, maps, articles, etc), and then by their subject, according to UISIC's interim Speleological Subject Classification (SSC) scheme.

    Romanian Speleological Federation
    Brief presentation
    The Romanian Speleological Federation (RSF) was founded on May 28, 1994 when the Central Commission of Speleology, the Romanian Society of Speleology and Karstology, the Transylvanian Speleological Society, the Speleological Society of Banat and the Group for Underwater and Cave Exploration joined into a single organization. In 1920, the Romanian scientist Emil Racovita established in Cluj the first Speleological Institute in the world. Through the years, this spurred increasing interest in scientific research focussed on biospeleology and other related branches, as well as "underground world" exploration. Dozens of speleological clubs appeared resulting the exploration of more than 12,000 caves. In 1972 the Romanian cavers were gathered into a national forum called " Speosport ". Since than, this became an annual event, organized by the Central Commission of Speleology. In 1990 the speleological clubs created several confederate structures. Finally, the common passion for the underground world has lead to the creation of the Romanian Speleological Federation in 1994. The aims of the RSF are:
    • to promote speleology and its related disciplines to promote the research and the study of the underground world to protect and conserve the caves' environment and the karstic landscape
    The RSF activity is structured on national and regional programs within the frame of three main subjects:
    • science and education environmental protection and conservation

    There isn't a Manual of Caver Information , but the following list will give you a good basic grounding in Missouri Geology, Biology, Natural History, and Basic Caving Techniques. More specific information on certain topics can be obtained from issues of Missouri Speleology , from contacting the NSS, Missouri Caving Grottos, and the publications divisions of the Missouri Dept. of Conservation and Dept. of Natural Resources, Geologic Survey and Resource Assessment Division, both of which have extensive lists of information for sale.
    Most of these books are available through public libraries, or through interlibrary loan. A few may be obtained only through cave specialty bookstores, such as the NSS Bookstore. A few are hard to get, but they are invaluable for what they provide.

    About SRSC

    The Romanian Speleology Karstology Society is an NGO founded in 1990 and aims to explore and protect the Romanian karstic areas.
    Its activity was primarely based on volunteers, including the four hundred active members, partner caving clubs and various environment organizations. The Romanian Speleology Karstology Society is under direct scientific coordination of the Romanian Academy and The Speleogical Institute "Emil Racovita".
    In the last three years, the activity of Romanian Speleology Karstology Society consisted in:
    - science-education (training and courses for all fields of interest)
    - awareness-information (issuing a periodical magazine "Ecocarst" since 2000)
    - specific activities for environment protection and conservation (environmental cleaning expeditions)

    Executive Comitee The current members of the Executive Comitee, as elected in the last General Meeting dated April 2002 are: Viorel Horoi - President Alexandru Petculescu - Vice-President Doru Panaitescu - Vice-President Razvan Arghir - Secretary Diana Petculescu - Treasurer Top History "It is not hard to tell that all Romanian speleologists, regardless their affiliations, wanted a necessary change in 1990 of the structure of the existing speleology's organization in Romania, even if there had been one of the most powerful "youth" organization in Romania by that date.

    Image: The (Big Hall), the biggest chamber of the Laichingen Vertical Cave Germany The forming of karst caves is very complicated and it is still a topic of geological research. But some basic aspects are very simple: water containing carbon dioxide CO is able to dissolve limestone. Unlike with salt and gypsum, water is not able to dissolve limestone without a little help. And this helper is carbon dioxide CO . Carbon dioxide is a very common gas, you know it from sparkling water, softdrinks, and beer. They all contain it, it makes them bubbling. Natural water also contains CO , but much much less, as it is normally not bubbling. Just fill some water in a bottle and after some hours you will see small gas bubbles at the glas of the bottle. Carbon dioxide is in the the air, about 0.03% of our atmosphere is this gas. Animals and humans breathe air, consume (burn) the oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Many carbon dioxide is produced by biologic processes in the soil. When the rain water falls, it first absorbs some carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, but then, oozing through the soil, it absorbs much more biogene CO
    In the water, the CO
